The Final Push.
Tuesday, March 13, 2007
The final coat of paint was applied to the engine room, the green is to match the engine and the background of the roses in the boatmans cabin. Keith spent sometime with Tina the boat painter to choose the colours for our Grand Union Canal Carrying Boat, we are going with the Red, White and Blue colour scheme, and have choosen from International Paints obviously White, the Blue is Bondi Blue and the Red is Rochelle Red. It will look fabulous.
Diesel Generator ready to be Installed.
The diesel generator was installed in the engine room today. It took quite a while to prepare the night before, removing all the soundproof casing, as it would not fit in the engine room with the casing on. It took quite a lot of effort and careful maneuvering to ease it in through the engine room doorway. Once inside the engine room it then had to be maneuvered around the engine to the other side of the boat, and the corner where it will reside.
The Generator goes Slowly in through the Engine Room Doorway.
The generator is to supply the power requirement for the washing machine and/or the tumble dryer, which is higher than that which the invertor will supply. But the major reason is that it will be used to charge batteries when moored in a location for a few days, rather than running the vintage National engine, I would rather wear out an easily replacable generator than a very rare vintage engine.
Installed in the Corner of the Engine Room.

Water Tank in Postion in the Bow.
We put Misty Lady up for sale with Longport Brokerage and no sooner was Misty Lady on the market, than we sold her, it only took one week. It is one less worry for when Hadar is completed knowing that we have a new owner for Misty Lady . Once Hadar is finished and we have moved on to her, the new owner can take over Misty Lady. It will be sad to see her go as she has been our home for 2 yrs and our first boat. But we will be fulfiling a dream with Hadar and that is extra special.

Port Granite Worktop and Tiling.
The galley now has a country kitchen feel to it, and that is exactly what I wanted. Yes that is me in the back ground. Keith and I are so pleased with the way things have progressed so far. Roger has worked really hard on Hadar and we look forward to another exciting week ahead.
